"We are proud to have worked with such a knowledgeable and determined design and construction team"
Joanna Cuevas, G&T Project Manager
“G&T New York has had the pleasure of working with a dynamic client that represents American design at its finest, demonstrating a commitment to the redevelopment of Manhattan’s west side as the first tenant partner in 10 Hudson Yards. Coach, Inc. will forever hold the legacy of taking a leap of faith in partnership with Related Hudson Yards in the first building to be completed in the complex. G&T was at the forefront of this project beginning with the challenging partnership negotiation with Related, seeing the client through several design and marketing changes, and adjusting to construction market fluctuations over the course of the project. We are proud to have worked with such a knowledgeable and determined design and construction team and look forward to the success of Coach, Inc. in their new headquarters.” Joanna Cuevas, G&T Project Manager.
G&T provided project and cost management services for two of the major tenants – Coach and L’Oréal USA. As anchor tenant and part owner of the new building, Coach will occupy floors 6-19 and the interior fit-out includes a design studio, small-scale manufacturing capability and office space.
As L’Oréal’s tenant representative for their headquarters relocation, G&T provided technical assistance on an extensive lease negotiation and offered guidance on key base building modifications including the addition of a terrace and raised floor system.
“The G&T Coach team feels extremely proud to be involved in the first phase of such an iconic and high profile real estate development in NYC. Managing the interior fit-out of the Coach floors and representing Coach on the Core & Shell project provided many challenges. To bring the project to a successful completion has been incredibly rewarding.”
Gordon Kerr, G&T Project Manager
